HP is recalling even more laptop batteries for ‘fire and burn hazards’

Recommended Posts

Due to the government shutdown earlier this year the CPSC was not able to communicate this recall effectively they said.

Excerpt:

"The new recall date is now March 12th, 2019, and it includes an additional 28,500 laptop battery units on top of the 50,000 initially announced back in early 2018. According to the CPSC, “HP has received eight new reports of battery packs in the US overheating, melting, or charring, including one report of minor injury and two reports of property damage totaling $1,100.”

Here’s a full list of the models, which includes some laptops HP sold as early as April 2015 and as late as December of last year:

The recall expansion involves lithium-ion batteries for HP commercial notebook computers and mobile workstations were sold to businesses and other organizations. The batteries were shipped with or sold as accessories for HP ProBooks (64x G2 and G3 series, 65x G2 and G3 series, 4xx G4 series), HPx360 (310 G2), HP Pavilion x360 11inch Notebook PC, HP 11 Notebook PC, HP ZBook (17 G3, and Studio G3) mobile workstations. The batteries were also sold as accessories or replacement batteries for the HP ZBook Studio G4 mobile workstation, HP ProBook 4xx G5 series, HP ENVY 15, HP Mobile Thin Clients (mt21, mt22, and mt31), or for any of the products listed above."
